Josh Duggar‘s lawyers somehow persuaded a federal judge (or his whiteness did) to release him from jail as he awaits trial on charges that he downloaded and possessed child pornography.

But he still can’t go home to his wife and kids: He will be released today (May 6, 2021) and confined to the home of longtime friends of his parents who have agreed to be his custodian during his release.

He can see his children but only in the presence of his wife, Anna Duggar. But he can’t have any contact with any other minor children, including his younger siblings, his siblings’ children and the children of friends.

Following a three-hour virtual detention hearing Wednesday, U.S. District Judge Christy Comstock also barred Duggar, 33, from any internet-accessible devices or viewing any kind of pornography or erotica, pending his July trial on the child pornography charges.

Duggar, who was arrested on the charges last week, appeared virtually in court Friday and pleaded not guilty to two counts of downloading and possessing images and videos depicting sexual abuse of minor children, some as young as toddlers.

Per People:

Josh’s devices were seized by Homeland Security in March 2020, and agent Gerald Faulkner provided a summary of the forensic analysis in testimony during Wednesday’s hearing.

The agent described multiple torrent files downloaded from a child abuse series described as within the “top five of the worst of the worst” that he has ever examined.

Faulkner said that Josh downloaded torrent files that included “a series of child sexual abuse material involving minor children ranging from about 18 months of age to 12 years of age.”

“And I can say in 11 years of doing this and the thousands and thousands of child pornography images and videos I’ve had unfortunately to see, the … series ranks in the top five of the worst of the worst that I’ve ever had to examine,” he said of the series Josh allegedly downloaded files from.

According to the report, Duggar had installed the Christian filter “Covenant Eyes,” which was supposed to alert his wife when he viewed porn. The filter did not work, according the report, because Duggar used a password-protected network.
